Cakes, Glorious Cakes

Whilst things over here have been a bit busy & hectic recently I haven't had much to blog about.

For example, we went to the opening of the new Red Ape enclosure at Chester Zoo a couple of weekends ago. It was nice. But it rained and rained and erm, rained. And we stood around, stood around and then queued in the rain. Eventually we got in & saw one Orang-utan. Yes one. Then we walked some more in the rain to get some nibbles (ok, not fab) and then hopped on the monorail for free all the way back to the car.

We also helped out at the Zoe's Place summer fete. In the rain. Though I did bake some delicious cupcakes thanks to my new favourite recipe from Nigella. Though they all sold quite quickly so we didn't get a look in.

However, the rain seems to have brought the baking abilities out in Mr C. Would you believe it?
He was quite taken with the one cake he did manage to scoff (the one that fell on the floor, what is it with men?).

So we have now seen two batches of cakes courtesy of Mr C. The first ended up getting left at my mum & dads so he had to make a second batch!!
I cant wait to see what he bakes for my birthday cake ;)

The burger recipe on my blog is adapted from a recipe in GFM a few months back.
